Yasiel Puig suspended one game for flipping off hecklers

The Indians’ Jose Ramirez bobbles a ball hit by the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Joc Pederson during Wednesday’s game in Cleveland.

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger is on a serious home run tear and he looks to stay hot when his team continues a three-game interleague series at the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday.

Puig flipped a pair of dirty birds to a group of heckling fans after homering in Tuesday’s win at Progressive Field.

Tied 2-2 in the eighth, Enrique Hernandez drove a solo home run to right field off Miller that led to a four-run eighth to take the lead and put the game out of reach. “I think he’s been so good, like incredibly good, that when he gives up a run everybody’s (shocked), but he’ll be fine”.

The victory gives the Dodgers the best record in the National League at 41-25, as they remain percentage points ahead of the Colorado Rockies for first place in the NL West. Vargas gave up five hits with six strikeouts and one walk for his fourth straight win overall and second against the Giants this season.

CLEVELAND The Dodgers and Cleveland Indians have the best bullpens in baseball by most statistical measures.

“It’s something that he wishes didn’t happen”, Roberts said.

Bellinger got a lot of advice from teammates before the game about facing Miller. So after I it, I was pumped because we got a little bit of momentum, and when you roll over the top of the order and you have to pitch to Kipnis, Frankie and Brantley, that’s what your trying to do.

Right-hander Josh Tomlin (3-8, 5.73 ERA) will start Thursday for the Indians.

The three-time Cy Young Award victor yielded six hits, struck out four and walked two while throwing 101 pitches. As for Hill, he’s given up a total of four earned over his last three starts, a span of 14.0 innings. The availability of Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for the series in Cleveland is uncertain.

Los Angeles is 4-0 all-time at Progressive Field and 24-9 this season when playing outside their division.

McCarthy held the Indians scoreless with one hit through the first five innings. Garrett pitched in four games for Low-A Greensboro, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.24 WHIP while striking out 16 batters in 151/3 innings.

Bauer was able to settle in and departed to a respectable line of 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R/ER, 3 BB, 5 K (108 pitches, 63 strikes, 58.3%, nine groundouts, two flyouts).
